Established in 2012, Catalyst for Transition is a small business based on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, established with the purpose of supporting non-profit organizations and small, locally-oriented businesses in their work.
Locally-oriented small businesses are paving the way for resilient communities, working toward local economic and ecological stability through meeting the needs of those around them. We envision a future in which communities thrive, nurturing a culture of sustainability and equity, and providing for all their needs.
Our mission is to provide a wide range of services that assist non-profit organizations and small businesses in their work that is so valuable to us all. Many such organizations do not have the time, resources, staffing or funds to be able to generate the effects they aim for, leaving some of their needs unmet. Catalyst for Transition aim to meet those needs, to a professional standard, but without breaking the bank. We will help you create a world that places people and planet above profits, while doing the same ourselves.
We value equity, which is why we try to level the playing field, meeting the needs of non-profit causes at a lower rate than our small business clients, and we do not displace the needs of our small clients in favour of the demands of higher-paying clients. Needs matter more than means.
We value integrity, which is why we work only with organizations whose values resonate with sustainability, equity, health and peace. We apply the utmost professionalism to the work we do, and pride ourselves on providing consulting services that place our clients’ unique needs at the centre. With our own background in both the non-profit and small business sectors we are in tune with your needs.
We value compassion, which is why we apply ourselves to serving causes rather than corporations. If it were not for our own economic needs we would much rather work with you free of charge, and, indeed, we do far more pro-bono work than is healthy for our wallets! But that is what it takes to make the world a better place, and assisting the transition is where our hearts lie.
Let’s work together to create a beautiful world of healthy, resilient communities – let’s catalyze a transition!
